    Review quote
    #1 "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER "USA TODAY "BESTSELLER "WALL STREET JOURNAL "BESTSELLER "An 'oral history' of the global war the evil brain-chewers came within a hair of winning. Zombies are among us--turn on your television if you don't believe it. But, Brooks reassures us, even today, human fighters are hunting down the leftovers, and we're winning. [His] iron-jaw narrative is studded with practical advice on what to do when the zombies come, as they surely will. A literate, ironic, strangely tasty treat." --"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review) "Max Brooks has charted the folly of a disaster response based solely on advanced technologies and brute force in this step-by-step guide to what happened in the Zombie War. He details with extraordinary insight how in the face of institutional missteps and greed, people in unexpected ways achieve unique, creative, and effective strategies to survive and fight back. Brooks's account of the path to recovery and reconstruction after the war is fascinating, too. "World War Z "provides us with a starting point, at least, a basic blueprint from which to build a popular understanding of how, when, and why such a disaster came to be, and how small groups and individuals survived." --Jeb Weisman, Ph.D., Director of Strategic Technologies, National Center for Disaster Preparedness "Possesses more creativity and zip than entire crates of other new fiction titles. Think "Mad Max" meets "The Hot Zone" . . . It's "Apocalypse Now," pandemic-style. Creepy but fascinating." "--USA TODAY ""Prepare to be entranced by this addictively readable oral history of the great war between humans and zombies. . . . Will grab you as tightly as a dead man's fist. A." "--Entertainment Weekly, "EW Pick "Probably the most topical and literate scare since Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast. . . . This is action-packed social-political satire with a global view." "--Dallas Morning News"
